Historically, setting up a Private Wireless Network has been a challenging task, often involving equipment from different vendors, leading to a disjointed experience that hampers deployment and management. However, the adoption of end-to-end private cellular solutions promises to alleviate these issues, providing enterprises with superior control and security over their Wireless LAN (WLAN).
Understanding the key differences between Private and Public Wireless Networks is crucial. These distinctions revolve around ownership, accessibility and intended use, making it clear why Private Cellular Networks are becoming increasingly attractive to enterprises.
The advantages of opting for a private 5G or LTE network for your LAN, whether on a construction site, warehouse, manufacturing plant, or smart city, are numerous:
Control: Achieve seamless visibility across your network, enabling IT teams to maintain control over policies, security, and data.
Coverage and Reliability: Private Wireless Networks provide the coverage and reliability needed for mobile applications, offering seamless handoff between access points, reducing downtime risks.
Security: Private networks require private SIM-enabled devices, ensuring only authorised users access the network, thereby enhancing security.
Cost Efficiency: Private Cellular Networks allow unlimited data usage without ongoing data charges, ideal for data-intensive applications like HD video streaming.
Scalability: A well-designed private cellular solution simplifies expansion, seamlessly transitioning from 4G to 5G and supporting more connected devices without sacrificing performance.
Additional Applications: Private Cellular Networks can easily integrate with Wi-Fi infrastructure to extend coverage and capacity, enabling future applications.
Building a Private Wireless Network involves a series of critical steps:
#1 Determine the Use Case: Identify operational barriers and define use cases for a successful build-out.
#2 Create an RF Design: Utilise an RF planning tool to determine the placement of cellular access points and map out the network architecture based on the use case.
#3 Develop a Proof of Concept: Build confidence in your private network solution by testing it through a proof of concept.
#4 Obtain the Equipment: Acquire key components from a single vendor, including a cellular core, cellular access points, private SIMs, endpoints and network management tools for streamlined management.
#5 Build and Verify: Deploy the network components and conduct post-deployment verification to ensure optimal performance and scalability.
